This site is being promoted through the emerging Hambleton Local Plan process for 30 dwellings, and is an allocation in the Publication version of the Hambleton Local Plan (Site GTA 1: Skottowe Crescent, Great Ayton). The submitted Local Plan is currently being examined by the government-appointed Inspector. The Local Plan examination process is estimated to be completed in 2021.
The proposed site is well located for village services, adjoins an existing affordable homes development and would incorporate large green spaces in keeping with its surroundings. The intention is to create a development of exceptional design which would enhance rather than detract from the setting of the conservation area.
